Thanks, David.  I can kind of see your point.  At any rate, I would
like to see churches do more to help their congregations along
technologically.  I do think it would be useful to find ways raise
awareness of Internet-based problems that impact our congregations. 
Perhaps a class would not quite do the trick for that, as those who
need to know may not attend.
